A Poem Worth Remembering – Revisited

More years ago than I can count, under circumstances I can’t recall, I learned a poem.  It has stayed with me over the decades.    This is it:

If you place your nose on the grindstone rough,

  and keep it there long enough…

You’ll soon forget there are such things

  as brooks that babble and birds that sing…

And your whole world will be composed

  of you, the stone, and your ground down nose…

It’s worth remembering.
